Kiteboarding: growing like wildfire

"With a Kite" is a documentary about the growth of the sport of kiteboarding.

The film opens with a narration by Sir Richard Branson, as the history of human flight via kite unfolds through custom watercolor cell animation.

"With a Kite" offers a personal perspective of a group of core pro riders that take part in one of the most prestigious kiteboarding competitions, the Triple-S Invitational.

Shot on location in Cape Hatteras, Hood River, Nitro City, Tampa, and Charleston, the documentary interviews riders at the Triple-S and other events, and get insight into their lives.

The film was shot entirely on state of the art equipment, including the Red Epic camera, at 5k resolution, and the Phantom Miro Digital High Speed camera, which captures 1000 frames per second for incredibly detailed slow-motion shots.

An original music score by Charleston musical artists Joshua Smoak, Alex Collier and The Dubplates carries through the entire film. "With a Kite" will be available from March 4th, 2014.
